Happy World Refugee day

Over 30 million refugees and internally displaced people live around the world, separated from their homes.

Zooming out…

At least one billion people have been hurt, killed, or had their lives destroyed because we have been unable as a human race to be compassionate enough (and take the right collective action) to take the steps and make the sacrifices necessary to end hunger and war.

There are passive and active ways this is perpetuated, and simple and complex solutions. But if we were to only focus on the active means and the simple solutions, even that would transform this world.

Give money to a cause if you would like to…but more importantly, sometime this week, take an hour to google around and educate yourself about the political situation refugees find themselves in. Your money alone isn’t going to solve this problem.
